You can do a Google image search for the album you are looking for. When you find the proper image, you can drag and drop it to the album artwork location. Hope this helps.

The artwork is stored in the individual song files so beware of large graphics - the song file sizes will increase. Also, for an album, you get the artwork repeated in each song.

Then deal with no Album Art work.
Thats the only way.

Either using iTunes, or with a 3rd party ID3 Tag editor

I have been fixing my ID3 Tags all week (i have ALOT of music)
And all the album's that i put on my iPhone i put the Artwork on them.

I like Media Monkey for album art. I did my entire 10,000 song collection (yes, not all of it's been acquired legally so shut it) with it and it works like a charm with the other tags as well.

Oh, and it's FREE. Well, the free version does what I needed and probably would work for you also.
